Women in Postal Service.
The distinction of first appointing a
woman postmaster does not belong to
America, nor is the employment of
women in the postal service a new
idea. As early as 1548 a woman post-
master was appointed to look after
the malls of Rraine le Comte, an im-
portant town of France. In the try-
ing times of the Thirty Years' war,
the principal office in the postal serv-
ice of Europe was held by a woman,
Alexandrine de Hue. From 1628 to
164B she was In charge of the mails

" Do you know of any woman who ever received any
benefit from taking Lydia IPinkham s Vegetable Com-
pound ? "
If any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar
to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be
surprised at the result. 1 here is hardly a community in
this country where women cannot be found who have been
restored to health by this famous old remedy, made
exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs.
During the pa;->t 30 years we have published thousands
of letters from these grateful women who have been cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never
in all that time have we published a testimonial without
the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly
published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine.
Here is one just received a few days ago. 1£ anyone doubts
that this is a true and honest statement of a woman's experi-
ence with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound write
and ask her.
Houston, Texas.—" Wlicn I first lwfrnn taking: Lyclia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound I was a total wreck. I liad Been
sick for three years with female troubles, chronic dyspepsia,
and a liver trouble. I had tried several doctor's medicines, but
nothing did me any ffood.
" For three years I lived on medicines and thought I would
never pet well, when I read an advertismcnt of Lydia K. I'ink-
hum's Vegetable Compound, and was advised to try it.
"My husband got me one bottle of the Compound, and it did
nie so much good I continued its use. I am now a well woman
anil enjoy the best of health.
"I advise all women suffering from such-troubles to give
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial. They won't
regret it, for it will surely cure you." —Mrs. Bessie L. Hicks,
819 Cleveland St., Houston.
Any woman who is sick and suffering is foolish surely
not to give such a medicine as this a trial. Why should it
not do her as much good as it did Mrs. Hicks.
